    My law school had one of those KayPro "portable" computers. Ours had an Orange typeface, not green.

    ... but I do digress.

    Looking at that I realize, I am way out of my league when talking about older tech.

    How do you guys still have your eyes intact to look at new 200PPI+ screens?! :confused:

    We don't.

    You think that is tough, feast your eyes on our early laptops...

    I actually owned a Toshiba 1100 Plus, reflective LCD monochrome screen - no backlight, but it was 640x200 - full CGA baby...

    I've gone to monocular vision. I hate glasses. I'm nearsighted from using computers for so many years. Wear a contact in one eye for far vision and use my natural nearsighted eye for reading my smart device. Works like a champ. Until someone hits a tennis ball at me on the courts. Then I go with both contacts and can't use my cell phone anymore without reading glasses.

    Ever stop to contemplate how screwed up would have been for the commoner in 1776, near or far sighted?

    Hey, that's why Ben Franklin invented bifocals.

    While I understand the peeve what is the practical downside to a sync that lags a minute on your devices? If you lay down the Samsung Tab, do you instantly pick up the Surface Book to continue note taking on that device? If so, why not do it on the Book from the beginning?
